Honeybees on ivy.

Sent from ny Nokia: Honeybees on ivy blossoms – thousands of them today, or so it seems.

I’m busy today with setting up my business accounts in Gnucash. I haven’t done any accounting except invoicing since November. I’ve been using Quickbooks up to now, but I want to use something with Linux. I usually love book-keeping once I start it! ๐Ÿ˜Š


I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

  1. They work so hard, and we nick their produce. We should all have to plant more flowers as a thank you. Don’t like book keeping, put it off for as long as I can that’s why I’m always running late for the tax man. Do all mine by hand, even then I get confused. Numbers are just not my thing. Had a boss that could run his finger down a sheet with numbers and have the answer, faster than a calculator. I run out of fingers & toes trying to add up.

    1. You know, Sue, if it wasn’t for having to apply for the Health Care Card my books would only just be done back to the end of June! I started off doing them by hand until we got the computer, and it came with the Quickbooks software so I would have been a fool not to use it. I think I’ve got this Gnucash figured out now. ๐Ÿ™‚


      1. Not game to try something new, I don’t need to invoice or anything like that, I think its easier to stick with what I know. Bought a new printer last month, worst one I have every use. “HP Envy”. Kept telling me I was low on coloured inks even after I put in new cartridge, I printed a B & W picture and it came out pink, machine kept telling me I was out of pink ?? Nearly ready to throw it out the door. Rang shop, brought it in & showed them the results, no problems, now I am the proud owner of a Canon. Fingers crossed.

      2. Gee, Sue, I don’t Envy you that! ๐Ÿ˜€ I usually put non-brand inks in my printer, and it always has a huffy fit but grudgingly lets me use it after warning they aren’t responsible for bad results. I always look at the price of the ink before I buy a printer – they are practically a disposable item compared to cartridge costs. Sounds like the HP Envy had dried up ink cartridges shipped with it. That sort of proves my point – it was cheaper to give you another printer than to just give you with new ink cartridges.
